After being asked to travel to a footballing outpost for a Tuesday night fixture, I dread to think how far in miles the round-trip is, Luton Town made the trek worthwhile by taking the three points available.

The win, the latest in a decent run of away results, gives the Hatters the slimmest of chances of making the League Two play-of places.

The Hatters cheered on by a small but loyal band of supporters saw Joe Pigott continue his recent goal-scoring form by scoring his third goal in two matches, a remarkable achievement considering he`d not netted for the Hatters until his brace at the weekend.

Last night, Pigott netted in the first half, giving Luton the lead, with a cool finish.

The second half saw Luton continue to make in-roads into the Carlisle defence and Josh McQuiod, much to the delight of the travelling support, doubled the lead, from close range.

But Carlisle, who started the fixture ahead of Luton in the table, fought back and when Jack Stacey drilled in an effort from the edge of the box, Luton had to survive a spirited finish from the home side to ensure all three points were taken.

The Hatters are now in 13th place but still six points off of that treasured play-off place we`re still aiming for.
